Hello,

I'm using a Dell Latitude 5580 laptop with an external monitor. The problem is that my desk is pretty small, so I cannot keep the lid fully open.

The solution I found so far is to keep it partially open, somewhere between 30-45 degrees. I'm thinking about a few downsides of doing this:
1. the hinges - are they affected because of the position?
2. the heat release (I guess some of it happens through the keyboard), which might not be done exactly as it should
3. the display - affected because of the heat?

I also avoid to keep it closed because of 2) and 3) above. Although the hinges won't be affected by the position in that case, they might be by the fact that I would have to open it everytime I turn the laptop on.

What do you think?

Thanks.
